A Duotone for Thurs

An unusual bit of fog this a.m. due to some actual precipitation here in N California.
And always fun to play around in Lightroom.

Emerging Amarylis Photo 2014

I received an Amarylis bulb from my sis for my birthday in December and when I took the bulb out of the box it was already growing! Yesterday I noticed the red starting to show so decided to document the emerging bloom for this blog. It is so lovely and sculptural; I love nature's artwork! In the foreground is my 22 yr old grape ivy.

Available breakfast light Canon T3i w/ Canon 100 mm macro L 2.8 IS, edited in Lightroom 4.

Oh One, Oh Two!

The sky is fun to shoot, always different. And with winter's bare trees you get an additional dimension.
I used the 17-55 lens and spent some time on cropping this one; there were some distracting roof protrusions.  What I liked was the contrails framing the tree so I removed what wasn't that story. Hey, I found words for it!

Day One, Oh One

Yay! I took a photo and edited in Lightroom.
Just the top of that tree was in sunlight. I saw it as a nice warm and light contrast to the dark tangle below.
